Last week’s Cavuto on Business (10/6/12) discussed the looming fiscal cliff coming on January 1. Near the end, the discussion turned to taxes. Ben Stein said, “I think high income people are going to have to take a lot of pain... Our taxes are just too low. We need higher taxes on well-to-do people. There’s not going to be a shortage of capital.

Peter Johnson, Jr., Fox’s supposed “legal analyst,” appeared on Fox & Friends this morning for one of a zillion segments lambasting Vice President Joseph Biden’s debate performance two nights ago.

In addition to Fox News hosts proclaiming that the "war on women" is a liberal myth and that - true story - women are insulted about all that talk about lady parts, several GOP women have appeared on Fox to push the same meme. These Republican women claim that what women really care about is the economy and who cares about lady parts. The woman in the attached video is supporting Romney for the reasons given above. But I don't think she will be appearing on Fox News.

Fox & Friends got a twofer earlier this week when it showcased a threatened lawsuit by Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley against the U.S. Military. Dooley is not only a virulent Islamophobe but he apparently hates President Obama. So when Dooley’s representative told guest host Peter Johnson, Jr. that the Pentagon has capitulated to jihadists, Johnson was all ears and no challenge.Read more
